Overview
Our New Zealand tour package covers all bases and beyond. Get up close and personal with our country's best kept secrets, as well as encountering all our hottest locations.
What to Expect
On the 24 days New Zealand tour you will explore many places and their background. You will get up close and personal with New Zealand's deepest and darkest secrets, as well as encountering all the hottest must-sees.

If you want to travel New Zealand and you have the time, we do recommend at least 3-4 weeks. This will allow you to truly get to grips with what our beautiful country has to offer you. We have designed our New Zealand tour with this in mind, and the route has gradually evolved according to both our tour managers' and our previous groups' feedback.

Starting and ending in Auckland, the tour descends down the middle of the North Island, crosses the Cook Strait at Wellington, and then circles the South Island in a clockwise direction before returning to the North. It is not so much of a tour as a journey, and one that we would like to think opens your eyes to our culture whilst ensuring every day is a fresh adventure to challenge and inspire you.
